Pokemon Go for Android

The hit augmented-reality game from Niantic and Nintendo

New updates to version 0.31.0

  • Avatars can now be re-customized from the Trainer profile screen
  • Improved memory issues
  • Removed footprints of nearby Pokemon

Snorlax, Farfetch'd, Mewtwo, Kangaskhan, Charizard and many other Pokemon have all been discovered on planet Earth!

The free-to-play Pokemon Go app encourages you to step outside and explore the world around you in order to discover and capture Pokemon.

As you walk around a neighborhood, your smartphone will vibrate when there's a Pokemon nearby. Take aim and throw a Poke Ball... You'll have to stay alert, or it might get away!

Certain Pokemon appear near their native environment-look for Water-type Pokemon by lakes and oceans. Visit PokeStops, found at interesting places like museums, art installations, historical markers, and monuments, to stock up on Poke Balls and helpful items.

As you level up, you'll be able to catch more-powerful Pokemon to complete your Pokedex. You can add to your collection by hatching Pokemon Eggs based on the distances you walk. Help your Pokemon evolve by catching many of the same kind.

As you Pokemon evolve you'll be able to take on Gym battles and defend your Gym against others.

Pokemon Go is also available for iOS.
